It’s been an eventful few weeks … again! Lots of events need to be postponed, cancelled, or adjusted each time we move into, and out of, remote learning. All our students, staff and families have done a fantastic job at dealing with each of these changes.
I would like to acknowledge all our specialist teachers. There have had to be big changes and adjustments to our specialist programs to each time there are changes to the Operations Guide. Thank you Madame Farnault and Madame Cameron, Mrs Gardiner and Mrs Wareham, Ms Driessen and Mrs Hewitt and Mrs Sketcher. Our students and families appreciate all the work you are doing to allow our specialist programs to continue.
Next Wednesday we will be having our Book Week parade. The theme for this year is “Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds”. I look forward to seeing students and staff dressing up and completing Book Week activities together.
Ninja Warrior Playground
Thank you to all the families who have shared the link and made donations for our Ninja Warrior course. A special thank you to Brendan Chisholm, who arranged a staff morning tea at Mark’s IGA and raised $325 towards the playground.
Most students and families will now be aware of the Slime Run Fundraiser that Parents and Friends are planning for next term (thank you Mark, Nathan and Nicole!). The money raised will also go towards the Ninja Warrior Playground.
Attitudes to School Survey
Every year our Grade 4, 5 and 6 students complete the Attitudes to School Survey. Students answer questions about their school, their wellbeing and their learning. The survey is being conducted in classes this week.
Parent/Guardian/Caregiver Opinion Survey
About 30% of our families will have received an email asking them to complete the Parent/Guardian/Caregiver Opinion Survey yesterday. These families are randomly selected each year. The survey is conducted in every school across Victoria and gives us valuable feedback to support school improvement. Could you please look out for the email and complete the survey by September 3rd. We will report the findings and next steps to all families in our Annual Report to School Council.
Like always, please get in touch with us with any questions or concerns. Call or email your classroom teacher, call the front office or email me email@example.com.
Have a great weekend.
